Ben's First Race

I'm interrupting our exciting Minnesota vacation coverage (yawn) to bring you Ben's first motorcycle race. That's right, folks, Ben, age 7, has completed his first race. Held in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa on a nice warm day with temps in the 90's, Ben raced against 5 other cyclists in the 50 cc class. (I'm not sure what 50 cc means, but I think it has to do with engine size.) They raced for a half hour, trying to complete as many laps as possible during that time around the trail mowed through a grass field. Ben placed 5th out of 6th. 
Let's interview the competitor.

Ben, who was your pit crew?

Were you nervous before the race?

How were the track conditions?

How was the air temperature?

Your thoughts on the race afterwards?

How well did you interact with the race officials?

Any last thoughts?

I couldn't have said it better myself! Way to go, Ben!
